|Thistledown's Alexia Knightrider|
| Alexia is the fawn / recessive black daughter of our 4X
blue ribbon-winning pinto Aurora, and our Champion true black herdsire,
Peruvian Knightrider. Her full sister, Agnes, is a pinto like their dam,
but Alexia appears to be solid fawn. From a genetic perspective, breeding a white
spot with a solid should produce a solid offspring 50% of the time, and a
white spot offspring 50% of the time, so these results conform with that
theory of color inheritance. Alexia has soft-handled, crimpy fiber and the
most beautiful face. Both her parents have excellent conformation and
coverage and with two black grandparents, one grey and one white, Alexia
should be a good choice to produce black and grey offspring. We are
her in our breeding program as a
replacement for her dam, Aurora, who is currently available for sale.
Awards: Too young to show until Fall 2008.
